The valley of Langtang is protected as the Langtang National Park. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just north of Kathmandu. A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore Tamang villages to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. The sacred lake of Gosaikund is one of the main attractions here. Thousands of Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrims visit the lakes during a full moon festival in August.
Crossing the holy Gosaikund Lake is another way of reaching Helambu from Langtang, while remaining at reasonable altitudes.

Moderate to Strenuous
A moderate to strenuous trek requires a medium level of fitness. During these treks you will be required to walk up to 6 hours in one day. The trails will not always be clear and may at times be narrow and steep. You will be at times quite high in altitude so should be prepared for colder conditions and occasional snow. Moderate to strenuous treks are normally in well facilitated areas but at times you should be prepared for minimal facilities and amenities, esp. if it is a camping trek. And you will be more isolated from major roads and towns.
